    Using the literature pertaining to the political economy of protection, this paper develops an analysis of the Algerian openness strategy over 1986-2012 period. It puts forward three main factors: the macroeconomic context, the sectoral interests of the main actors of the national political economy system and the intellectual context. This allows to distinguish three different periods in the Algerian trade policy: the deligitimation of protection (1986-1994), the bounded openness under the constraint imposed by international organizations (1994-1998) and the look for managed openness (1999-2011).
